"You are just a lump of flesh in the womb of your mother and then Allah sends an angel to you and the angel blows life into you at 120 days. The angel says, ‘O my Lord! What is his sustenance? O my Lord! What are his deeds? O my Lord! What is his date of death?’, and ‘O my Lord! Is he amongst the blessed or the wretched?’.
The angels say to the believers ‘Come out to the pleasure of your Lord, come out to His forgiveness, come out to His mercy, we were with you through this entire journey and we will carry you throughout.’ They take your soul from the body, you go to the grave and your questioners are two angels. You are raised on the Day of Judgment with an angel that drives you out and an angel that bears witness for or against you, and then you enter into Paradise where Angels enter upon you perpetually saying ‘Peace be onto you for the patience that you had’.
In this book, we explore the various roles the angels play in our everyday lives and the blessings they bring from the invisible realm by the permission of our Creator."
